Ricky Gervais plans David Brent movie

Aug 22 2013, 10:06am CDT | by Bang Movies

Ricky Gervais is planning a David Brent film.

The British comedian wants to bring 'The Office' character's struggle to break into the music industry to life on the big screen, and it seems the recent return of the hapless office manager in a series of web shorts was all part of the plan.

According to The Hollywood reporter, Gervais ''plans to sign a record deal for his 'Office' character, whom he recently revived through his YouTube series 'Learn Guitar With David Brent'.''

The website adds: ''The instalments began as a stunt for charity, but Gervais hopes they will be the basis for a movie about Brent trying to make it in the music industry.''

The TV character is known for his cringe-worthy sing-alongs and Gervais has penned several comedy songs for his alter-ego, including 'Spaceman Came Down' and 'Ain't No Trouble'.

'Learn Guitar with Brent' was part of YouTube's first ever Comedy Week in May and saw Gervais, 52, perform a new song every episode.

He is reportedly close to inking a deal with Fiction records, home to artists like Snow Patrol and Kaiser Chiefs.

Gervais will next take on the lead in 'The Muppets... Again!' sequel, a role which producer and co-writer Todd Lieberman described as ''tailor made'' for him.

He said: ''We wrote this character and then realised that the person we have to cast is Ricky. I think people are going to see this character was tailor-made for him.

''Also, he's about as big of a Muppets fan as you can have in the world. He reveres the Muppets like we revere the Muppets!''

Rick Gervais' David Brent Is Back And Singing This Ridiculous Song

Oct 2 2014 6:42pm CDT | Source: cinema blend

Even though we’d never want to actually deal with Ricky Gervais’ brilliantly aggravating David Brent on a daily basis, it certainly is a discomforting pleasure to have him back in our lives every so often. This may be our first peek into Brent’s upcoming transition to the silver screen, and there’s arguably no better way to experience this self-inflated buffo ...
